Florence sending six wrestlers to sectional

THREE LAKES, Wis. – Six Florence wrestlers placed high enough to qualify for sectional competition.

“I can’t say enough,” Florence coach Shane McLain said. “These boys wrestled with heart. Their conditioning in practice along with a drive and desire to win, paid off.”

Danny Jones (120 pound), Shawn Paulson (126), Andrew Kelley (132), John Lemanski (138), Josh Seibold (145) and Anthony Kiligis (160) all advanced to the sectional meet at Shawano Saturday.

Jones and Paulson placed first in their weight classes. Kelley, Lemanski, Seibold and Kiligis were second. Only the top two wrestlers from each weight advanced.

Florence’s Mitch Koenig (152) placed fourth in his group.
